That's funny PR...they would have exactly the same standards there as they would have in Chattanooga and probably more Americans working there than Mexicans. VW Chattanooga members go down there to help build Jettas all the time! It's not different than our plant, standard wise. All of the same things are in place, they demand excellence no matter where it's assembled. That was a very ignorant statement for you to make!
As a "higherlevelthinker" you sure do open your mouth with ignorance. I'm loving that you think she's not capable of representing the children in her district because she's a hairdresser....and you also bring up that she's a woman. Way to go! That's on another level alright...A level of intolerance and perpetuating the very thing you deem as inappropriate. Hurts to hear the truth sometimes, that's the only reason it should irritate ANYONE.
Thank you BlueDagger, best post I've seen about this topic! People will always flip it though, gives them someone to vent their frustrations on. She spoke on facts alone.
Just because you send your children to other schools does not mean you don't represent children that attend Hamilton Co. public schools. Most school systems indoctrinate the children, teaching them only what they want them to know. Also if you want religion in the classroom, you have to pay for it. I don't believe anything she said was racist, I think it's ignorant to assume otherwise. Some are just looking for a chance to pull the race card, especially politicians that want to benefit from the drama. Please! Slaves learned to read under the worst circumstances and almost no resources, the fact that inner-city schools are given more resources and cannot produce the same results is significant. I'm actually glad she brought it up, maybe more parent participation is needed if the schools arent' making any progress. I would say we need to focus on the parents more than anyone....teachers, the school system and resources only go so far. I honestly think that's all she was saying...what is the excuse for not learning? If slaves can do it, poor people in today's time can do it then there should be no excuse for current inner city students....by the way that includes white kids too. Point, Blank, Period.
“The illegality they got themselves into is one of their choice,” he said. “We should not be made feel bad about the illegal activities they got themselves into; we are not responsible for their consequences.”
Best part of the entire article. bpqd...the same thing WOULD be happening to us in another country but I wouldn't expect different results. It SHOULD happen to us if we tried that but the consequences would be much quicker and much more harsh. Thing is we aren't trying to do that...and America is a sinking ship just like Mexico. Saying it's ok that they are acting entitled does not mean they should be, in a nation of laws they chose to break several and it has finally caught up to them. It is unfortunate the kids have to suffer but that is part of the choice their parents made.
I agree with biofish, the voice of reason. All the paper did was report what happened, no one was making fun of her in the article. These were actual facts from the scene and quotes from her, not speculation. And...if your daugther is this bipolar with several children of her own, you never move 800 miles away. That speaks volumes. No one was hurt and it will all pan out, if she is bipolar this type of behavior will be happening for the rest of her life and she needs all the support she can get from her family.
God didn't make them illegal, they made themselves illegal by breaking the law in a country of laws. If God was here, he would have all of this settled for us...I'm sure. So here we are left to come to a solution ourselves. We should take care of our own first, you cannot discount those that have gone thru the LEGAL immigration process. The entitlement of those that do not want to follow the rules is out of hand! Why fight to jump from one sinking ship (Mexico) to another (USA)?
Yes, whether you agree on the tax issue or not....they had an agreement and spent a lot of money to have a location here. This will send a very bad message to any other companies interested in our area. It's sad, the greedheads want in everyone's pockets even when it's quite clear what Amazon will do for the economy overall. Keep pushing until we shoot ourselves in the foot!
The only thing you forgot Harry is the sure wrath to come from the Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association....the pack mentality is alive and well within. No matter what Wayne says, they'll have his back and it will go on and on and on and on. Doesn't have to make sense, they'll campaign tirelessly for his return even if he truly wasn't the best man for this job.
Wow! What I see is an interesting group of people with stories to share behind tattoos they chose to get and yet people still find reasons to come out of the woodwork with their disgusting, judgemental comments. Whatever makes you feel better about your life, I guess. Fascinating! If you have something interesting to say, say it...but if you want to accuse all of these individuals of getting tattoos for attention, you might want to look in the mirror. Posting extremely immature comments just because you can (freedom of speech) paints a very ugly picture of your character and cries for attention. Everyone has their own path and reasons that they made the decisions they have made, they haven't hurt anyone but themselves (voluntarily) so why throw any kind of hateful two cents their way? Whether I agree with these stories, Kudos for having the courage and individuality to share that with us. Things we do not understand often scares us, how obvious that is in these opinion articles.
